Fan-fiction part two

Lizzy nodded. "Yes, you're amazing, and I'll probably be staring at you in awe in the very near future, but right now, all I want to know is where they took my brother." Skulduggery nodded, dropping his hand and simply saying, "Dublin."

Skulduggery and Valkyrie had debated a bit about bringing Lizzy. They thought it would be dangerous to leave her behind, but it would be just as dangerous to bring her. Finally, Lizzy had butted in, telling them she was coming and that was the end of that. Skulduggery shrugged and told her he and Valkyrie would wait outside. So Lizzy went to prepare herself. She put on her brown, leather jacket and army boots, attaching a sheath and dagger to her belt and sliding a small knife into her boot. She packed a change of clothes and several boxes of ammunition into a small backpack. Then put her rifle in a case and slung it over her shoulder. She was almost ready. She walked into her parents' room, giving each of them a hug. She looked at both of them closely, not wanting to forget the smallest freckle. "I'll be back..... Probably." She walked through her house slowly, looking at all the scuffs and scratches that she knew the story behind. She sighed. Then opened the door and walked outside into her wood, basking in the light from the rising sun that seeped through the leaves of the trees. She sucked in a great breath of pure, woodland air, took one last lingering look at her house, then, looking at Skulduggery, said, "I'm ready." 
The walk back to Skulduggery's 1954 Bentley R-type Continental, which was one of only 208 ever made, would take about 15 minutes. In that time, Lizzy decided, she would get a few answers. "How did you know Sanguine was in my house?" 
"We've known something was going on with Sanguine for a while now. Then people, fans of Derek Landy, actually, began disappearing," replied Valkyrie.
"So you guys know about Derek Landy?"
"Yeah, of course. He's sort of like another Gordon except less.... cuddly." Lizzy smiled. "Anyway," Skulduggery continued. "We cornered him last night and, at some point, a list fell off of him."
"A list?"
"Indeed, a list of names and locations. You were on it."
"So that explains how you knew where I was, but how did you know he was coming for me next?"
"My insane intuition."
"... I mean really."
"Actually, the names above yours were crossed out."
"Ahhh, that explains it." She smiled again, then thought of another question,  "Who is Sanguine working with or for?"
"We're not sure yet. We think Dusk. Maybe someone else, maybe others."
"Ok... well, do you know why they want people who know of Derek Landy's works?" Skulduggery glanced at Valkyrie and Lizzy looked at them looking at each other. Then Valkyrie slowly spoke, ".... We think they're using them for a couple of things. One, maybe to create an army of vampires. There seem to be more of them on the loose.... The other.... is for experiments. We found a.... a sort of abandoned lab. They..... they didn't clean up....." Lizzy froze. "They have Tom." 
"Yes, " Skulduggery continued. "And we think we know where they are." She began walking again. "But before that," he said. "We need to make a quick stop."
"A stop? Where at?"
"Adelaide, Australia."
"Ok... why do we need to go there?"
"My dear, may I just tell you, you ask an insanely large amount of questions?" 
"Oh, ok then....., we need to go there because there's one more person on the list. His name, as I recall, is Joseph."
"Joseph? You mean Hellboy??" She said worriedly. Skulduggery stopped walking, turned to Lizzy, put his hand on her shoulder, and sadly spoke, "I'm very sorry to be the one to tell you this, but Hellboy is a fictional character in a movie. He's not real." Lizzy just stood there for a moment staring at him, then slowly replied, "... Hellboy is Joseph's username."
".... Oh" Skulduggery removed his hand and walked on. Lizzy and Valkyrie looked at each other and couldn't help but laugh. Skulduggery turned around looking at them behind his sunglasses, his fingers tapping impatiently, making them laugh all the harder. He shook his head, muttering something about nothing being funny. The girls fell to their knees, laughing too hard to stand. They clutched their sides from the pain of it all. "What's going on here?" Said a new voice, coming from the edge of the woods. Lizzy glanced up through her tears to see a boy of about 17 with crazy brown hair walking up. Skulduggery shrugged, "I have no idea." They laughed more, almost deliriously, till finally,  Valkyrie wiped her eyes and said, "Oh, Fletcher you wouldn't get it."
"Why does everyone think I won't get stuff?"
"Because you can't, " she chuckled, standing up. "... Yeah, but I could always pretend I understood it..." She laughed, shaking her head.
"Anyway" Lizzy stood up too. "I'm Lizzy and I'm coming with you. By the way, I thought you had blond hair..."
"Nah, that's just how Derek described me, for some reason. Frankly, I have no idea why he thought he needed to change this perfect face at all." He through his head back and struck a pose, making Valkyrie roll her eyes and punch his arm. "Ow," he muttered. "Well, " spoke Skulduggery. "It seems the laughing bit is over, so we should probably depart to Adelaide."
"Right" Fletcher said, as he walked back out to the edge of the wood. It was there that Lizzy saw the most beautiful car in all of existence. "Wow" she mumbled. "I love your car, Skulduggery." He looked at her. "Not one scratch."
"Of course not..." she replied innocently.
Fletcher, impatient to teleport, put his left hand on the car and reached his right out to Valkyrie. Valkyrie took his hand and linked her other with Lizzy's, as Lizzy held Skulduggery's. An instant later Lizzy doubled over, sick. After a moment, it passed, and she glanced up to see she was no longer on the outskirts of her wood, but in the bustling city of Adelaide where she would meet Hellboy.


  1. LOL YES!!! It was BRILLIANT!!!
    I really am enjoying this Skyril. It's so much FUN!!! Love the humor in it too! I can't wait to see what Hellboy's part is like.

    Skulduggery stopped walking, turned to Lizzy, put his hand on her shoulder, and sadly spoke, "I'm very sorry to be the one to tell you this, but Hellboy is a fictional character in a movie. He's not real."

    SO FUNNY!!!!! I love it.
